It has gone by the name Chinbok (Burmese: ချင်းပုတ်), but this is a regional name of the colonial era applied to neighboring languages as well. Alternate names include Cho, K’cho, K’cho Chin, Mindat, Mün, Müün.
Ethnologue lists 3 dialects, namely:
- Ng’men (Hletlong, Hmong-K’cha, Nitu)
- Gah (Ng-Gha)
There are at least 2 dialects, namely Hngiyung and Ng’men (also called Hletlong, Hmong-K’cha, Nitu). This dialect is almost disappeared as forgotten by Mün people. Instead of upgrading Mün dialect, they are still trying to create Kcho dialect. After 2030 the name Mün ethnic group will be obscurer because they all left the word Mün behind.
